She's an inspired cook who can throw a meal together on a whim from a refrigerator she keeps packed with all manner of whole, natural foods. She's an enthusiastic supporter of local growers and producers and regularly sends me emails highlighting recent cooking triumphs and trials. A few months back she emailed me her healthy cookie recipe. Butter-less, flour-less, egg-less, and potentially sugar-less cookies, I promptly filed it under "can't possibly be good.
When I made a trip to Philadelphia a few weeks back and spent the day with Nikki the topic of the "healthy cookies" was revisited. Nikki mounted a compelling argument for these banana-battered treats, and I quickly bumped them to the top of my to-do list.

My only regret is that I didn't try them sooner. The shredded coconut gives each cookie a hint of macaroon-esque texture, the oats lend heartiness, and melted chocolate chunks deliver bursts of dark, intense richness. You get just enough golden crustiness where the cookies touch the pan to play off the tender coconut-flecked center of the rest of the cookie. Wayne and his brother Greg drove me out to see Nikki in Kennett Square , and for those of you who find yourself in the area I'll list off a few of the places Nikki took me to visit that day.

First thing in the morning, on the drive out, we stopped off at Terrain at Styers. I bought enough that my suitcase barely squeaked under the fifty pound mark on the flight home - I should also thank Terrain for stocking my book! With Nikki we made the short drive from her house to Va La Vineyards , and then onto an organic mushroom grower to pick up a case of portobellos which we would throw on the grill later.
We hit "downtown" Kennett Square and I got a coconut popsicle at La Michoacana before hitting up their wonderful farmers' market more on this later , on to Talula's Table , and then back to Nikki's house for an impromptu feast with the kids and a few of Nikki's wonderful friends.

I sort-of shaved half the bar with a knife and then cut the rest into bigger chip-sized chunks. You can make your own almond meal by pulsing almonds in a food processor until it is the texture of sand - don't go too far or you'll end up with almond butter. And lastly, the coconut oil works beautifully here, just be sure to warm it a bit - enough that it is no longer solid, which makes it easier to incorporate into the bananas.

In a large bowl combine the bananas, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. So glad you liked them!! The photos could definitely use an update, but I love this recipe! What do you recommend instead of peanut butter butter? Hey Taryn! Hi, Sonya! Any recommendations on a flour substitute? Thank you for taking the time to share. Thank you so much, Jessica!!

I plan to try these! I am more of a cook than a baker… any time I try to make cookies, they always come out hard and my husband does not like crispy cookies. He likes them soft and of course for my 1. So, what is the consistency? How can I guarantee they come out soft?

I would give them a try as the recipe is written — if you are really, really concerned maybe add just an extra Tablespoon or so of applesauce! A healthy recipe that really is good.
I used almond flour and grated the carrots and zucchini. Also used frozen kale as that is what I had on hand.
